Absolutely loved this trail. Lots of uphill and rocky in parts. Ended up around ten and half miles, a little over 4 hours.

Awesome! I added it up to be 10.2 miles for the whole loop from the parking lot. Well worth it!

Beautiful hike! Easy to get to the first small lake, but totally worth it to keep going an extra 3ish miles to get to willow lake. Very rocky and uphill the whole way in. Took us about 5 hours to make it in and back out. Very few people once we got passed the first small lake and beautiful high country.

This trail was great for a first time out after not backpacking for about 12 years. It rekindled my love for hiking and backcountry camping. Beautiful area!
